*A badass Rock ‘n Roll life style usually does not end well and the life of singer songwriter Judee Sill (1944-1979) is no exception. After the death of her exotic animal selling father her life took many turns: Learning to be a cartoonist from her Tom&Jerry animating stepfather, long hours of playing in a piano bar, robbing liquor stores Bonnie & Clyde style with her much older boyfriend, going to reform school, playing as an […]
